He thanked MCAs for trusting his leadership style and promised to ensure quality bills are passed in the assembly.
He at the same time assured Chepkumia residents of more development, adding that the responsibility before him is huge but he is upto the task.
“Though the responsibility is demanding, I am upto the task. I will develop Chepkumia and Nandi at large,”said Sang.
